Pumpkin Spice Twinkies - Walmart

Pumpkin Spice Twinkies - Walmart
In case you didn't know, last Thursday was the first official day of fall (in America), and it hit NJ like a ton of bricks! Friday night I was driving home from work in a tank top with the windows down in 90 degree weather, and two days later I need to put a hoodie on to drive into work in the morning! I love all things spooky, Halloween-related, and pumpkin, but it's all happening too fast. It's not just the weather either, grocery stores have switched gears and we're now experiencing Pumpk-ageddon 2016
Anything and everything pumpkin is lining the shelves and limited edition summer flavors are no where to be found. One of the brands that has really run head-first into fall flavors is Hostess. They've released a bunch of Halloween themed items and THREE different Twinkie flavors for the fall. I figured there's no use denying it, summer is over, so I grabbed a box of pumpkin spiced Twinkies to join in with the rest of the basic food bloggers, so grab you're sweaters and let's see if this fall flavor is worthy of replacing my beloved summer Ghostbusters boxes.

NEW Sour Patch Kids Strawberries - Walmart

 Sour Patch Strawberry - Walmart 
Sorry for the long pause between written posts. I mentioned this before, but I'm currently house hunting, so talking to mortgage companies and looking at homes is taking up a LOT of my time. Once I find a place and settle in things will back to normal. In the meantime, don't be fooled! This bag says "new" but these have been out for months, maybe even half a year at this point. Still, "new" or not, I was intrigued.

PB Crave Cookie Nookie Peanut Butter - Aldi $4.99

PB Crave Cookie Nookie Peanut Butter - Aldi $4.99
I bought the banana peanut butter for me, and this one I bought just for you guys. Looking at my older posts, and post made by my fellow food bloggers, the general public goes NUTS for cookie dough flavored stuff. I just don't understand it!

Don't get me wrong, cookie dough is amazing. Cookie dough flavored things? Not so much. I like to bake and I do so quite often, so I know what real cookie dough tastes like, and nothing "cookie dough flavored" has ever held a candle to the real deal. Do people just not remember what the real thing tastes like? Or do we all just turn a blind eye and accept it because of the convenience of not having to whip up a batch of dough ourselves? Maybe this peanut butter will prove me wrong, and I'll literally be eating my words, after all the banana version is great, but I'm pretty skeptical...

Campfire Ghostbusters Marshmallows - Walmart

 Campfire Ghostbusters Marshmallows - Walmart
Being an adult sucks. It's Saturday, and instead of sleeping in and being a bum in my PJ's I woke up early to take a 2-hour state-regulated standardized test on art making and content knowledge. Then I came home  and cleaned out my car (because I dropped my license under the seat and couldn't find it), made lunch, did three loads of laundry, folded all three loads of laundry and dusted. After all that adulting...I deserve a treat. 
I picked up these special Ghostbusters themed marshmallows a while back and I really wanted to review them...but they're just normal marshmallows in wacky shapes and colors, so I didn't think the review would be all that interesting.
Instead, I'll just give you a close up look at the shapes and show you what I made with them.

Limited Edition Banana Split Twinkies - Walmart #tbt

Limited Edition Banana Split Twinkies - Walmart 
I don't want to adult anymore! Sorry for the sporadic update schedule. I'm house hunting for place closer to work (to lessen my nearly 2-hour daily drive) and it's been eating up whatever free time (and sanity) I have left when I leave my 9-5. Fingers crossed that I find a place soon, but for now I'm taking a break from Adulting. For the next hour or two I'm going to sit back, put on some Netflix, and eat a box of Twinkies. I bought these a few months ago, and the cycle of food products have already replaced them with a slew of spooky new treats, so I'm counting this as a #tbt. (But next week's #tbt is going to have a little more...Spice.)

National Cream Filled Donut Day! - Krispy Kreme Fall Doughnut Reviews!

National Cream Filled Donut Day! - Krispy Kreme Fall Doughnut Reviews! 

You remind me of the glaze,
What glaze?
The glaze on the doughnut? 
What doughnut? 
The doughnuts from the Drive-Thru
Who do?
You do!
Do what?
Remind me of the glaze! 
Apparently it is National Kreme-filled Doughnut Day, so here we are! I picked these up after seeing a 30th anniversary screening of Labyrinth with my sister. On our way home we passed a Krispy Kreme and, well...we just couldn't resist. We got hot from the fryer glazed doughnuts and ate them in the parking lot. (Like the classy ladies we are.) Then I grabbed one each of the new fall doughnuts to review. 
I got one Pumpkin Spice, and one Salted Caramel Latte. I've got one minute left of National  Kreme-filled Doughtnut Day to review them...so let's get this thing started!
